Well, a week after we returned from CO, we took the kids to CA to see my parents. The plan was to drop off the older 3 over the weekend and then come back. Well, it didn't work out that way, my mother asked me to stay and so I did. We sent Mike home on an airplane and I returned a week later with the kids. I had a nice visit while I was there, I got to go to the beach twice. I saw my cousin Kerri and her husband and daughter. My cousin Elizabeth, who lives in Utah, was actually in LA with her kids too, we got together and played games. I even got see some of my friends from high school, Rachel Schnieder, Kelly Hanlon, and Roslynn (Frick) Casterline, just to name a few. The kids got to hang out with Grammy and Grandpa Costello. They were of course spoiled as expected. They had such a great time there. While we were there, my brother Jason came to visit my mom and brought his girlfriend with him. Her name is Terena, and it was her first time boogy boarding in the ocean, she had so much fun, she didn't want to get out! It was a nice relaxing time and I really enjoyed it, but I'm also glad to be home finally. I felt like this summer was one thing after another, so I'm happy to take a deep breath and try to find some order in my house.
